PLAN YOUR VISIT
How can I access the store?
In order to avoid crowding inside and in front of the store, capacity will be limited and controlled in real time. There are two ways to access the store:
- Reservations (pre-booking): you can make your reservation for the date and time you prefer via this website, which will grant you priority access (free of charge) with skip-the-line entry to the store. We strongly recommend that you make a reservation so that your admission is guaranteed.
- Virtual queue: for walk-ins there will be a virtual queue accessible via QR code at the store, even if pre-booking sessions are sold out. This virtual queue will be available only if the reservations queue is not full for the day.
Is it free to visit the store?
Yes, both reservations (pre-booking) and virtual queue are free of charge.
Is there a limit on people per transaction?
Yes, both reservations (pre-booking) and the virtual queue are limited to 8 people per transaction. If you want to attend with a larger group, you will need to make two or more reservations.
What’s the benefit of making a reservation?
The reservation will grant you priority access with skip-the-line entry to the store for the date and time you choose. Otherwise, you will have to access the store through the virtual queue, which we can’t guarantee will be available on your preferred date and time.
Do I need to arrive at the start of my scheduled session?
Yes, please arrive 10 minutes before the time stated on your reservation so we can make sure you can enter the store at the right time.
Can I transfer my reservation to someone else?
Yes, you can transfer your reservation to anyone for free. It is as easy as clicking "Transfer Tickets" on your ticket on the Fever App. Please contact us
for additional help. Make sure to include your ticket order number.
What happens if I want to reschedule my visit or if I can no longer make it?
In either case, please contact us
so we can cancel your reservation and free the space for other guests. If you want to reschedule, please book again your new preferred date and time.
I can't find my reservation. What should I do?
You can find your reservation with the QR code in the confirmation email or in the Fever app, within the Tickets section. Remember to log in using the same account that you used when reserving your spot. If you still cannot find your reservation, please contact us
Do I need to print my ticket?
No. Ticket validation will be through contactless QR codes, which you can find in your booking confirmation email or in the Fever App.
How can I join the virtual queue?
In order to join the virtual queue, you will need to scan the QR code at the store with your smartphone and select the number of people attending (max. 6 per group). You will be sent a notification when it’s your turn. You do not need to wait at the store.
Where can I find the QR code to scan?
The QR code will be available to scan outside the store. When our virtual queue is full, we will close the queue and turn off the QR code.
How can I access the store when it’s my time?
When it’s your time to enter the store, you will be sent a notification. Once you’re back at the store, line up at the virtual queue line with your ticket ready.
